Augsburg Hamburger Football tips and predictions

Hamburger have taken just one point from their last three Germany. Bundesliga matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Hamburger are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Augsburg should prove no easy feat either – Hamburger haven’t won against any Germany. Bundesliga leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Augsburg have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Augsburg dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Germany. Bundesliga’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Augsburg are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Augsburg and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Augsburg’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Hamburger are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Hamburger took a point away from Augsburg (1-1 draw).

Notably, Augsburg’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Augsburg have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Germany. Bundesliga away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Hamburger, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Hamburger getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Hamburger are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Augsburg hold the best away record in the Germany. Bundesliga (W8 D2 L1). Hamburger’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Augsburg’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Augsburgns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Augsburg win at 15/2 with bet365.
